The Role of Idris Elba’s Character in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty

Idris Elba plays a key character named Solomon Reed in the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty DLC. While much is still under wraps about this character, we have gathered some details about Solomon Reed to give you a glimpse into what to expect.

Who is Solomon Reed?

Solomon Reed is a secret agent working for NUSA’s FIA in the world of Cyberpunk 2077. Similar to the CIA but with a futuristic twist, the FIA plays a crucial role in the game’s storyline. In the cinematic trailer for Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, we witness Reed being ruthlessly attacked by Arasaka troopers and left presumably dead.

Further context reveals that Songbird, also known as So Mi, is an FIA recruit mentored by Solomon Reed. The two build a strong bond while working together, but it is later revealed that the soldiers responsible for the apparent murder of Reed are sent by Songbird herself.

Within the game, Solomon Reed works undercover as a sleeper agent. Through the course of the game, players will encounter Reed alongside V and Johnny Silverhand, creating intrigue around the relationship between Reed and Songbird.

Aside from his character’s role, Idris Elba’s involvement goes beyond acting. Elba has also produced and rapped on two original songs, which players can enjoy through in-game radios. The new Dark Star radio station will feature these tracks while Elba’s DJing skills will be showcased on the Impulse radio station.

While Solomon Reed may not be as prominent as the iconic character Johnny Silverhand, the inclusion of Idris Elba’s tracks in the game adds another layer of excitement. Fans are eager to uncover the story of Solomon Reed and its impact on V and the broader narrative of Cyberpunk 2077.
